's speakers, building on the momentum of last night. how can you top michelle obama? >> believe it or not, when we were first married, our combined monthly student loan bill was actually higher than our mortgage. yeah. we were so young, so in love, and so in debt. and that's why barack has fought so hard to increase student aid and keep interest rates down. because he wants every young person to fulfill their promise and be able to attend college without a mountain of debt. so in the end, for barack, these issues aren't political. they're personal. because barack knows what it means when a family struggles. he knows what it means to want something more for your kids and grandkids. barack knows the american dream because he's lived it. and he wants everyone in this country, everyone, to have the same opportunity. he reminds me that we are playing a long game here. and that change is hard. and change is slow. and it never happens all at once. but eventually, we get there. we always do. we get there because of folks like my dad. folks like barack's grandmother. men and women who said to them

're going to be good. the headliner is none other than the first lady herself, michelle obama. and the keynote skooep speaker is a guy you may not know right now, but mark my words, you're going to know him tomorrow, and you're going to know him in probably the next four and eight years. more on that in a moment. but cnn's joe johns is watching all of this live. he joins me. joe, we watched at the rnc when ann romney kicked off that first night, and it was -- really, it was such a great speech. people will say what they will about a party that they don't like. but she was a great speaker, and she had everybody wrapped. and everybody talked about her in the media the next day, which is really the key when it comes to these conventions. nobody had really heard from her before, but they have heard from michelle obama. so is the pressure higher for mrs. obama to really sort of punch through, get her message out there, and get headlines for tomorrow? >> it's true, people have been listening to michelle obama for four years now, even more than that. but actually, i've got to tell yo

from the star of the obama family, michelle obama. you know, this is just like a relay and you start off with the fastest person. so i'm going to be at home and i'm going to be watching it with our girls. and i am going to try not to let them see their daddy cry. because when michelle starts talking, i start getting all misty. >> let's go to our white house correspondent brianna keilar. she's downstairs here in the convention at the time warner cable. what else do we expect the first lady to say tonight? >> wolf, we're really expecting her to stay somewhat on message when it comes to what president obama's campaign is all about. that he's making decisions putting the middle class first. but she's going to be doing it. a source close to her tells me from a very personal place. she'll obviously talk about herself is the person who knows him best, around him at very pivotal moments and she'll talk about how she's seen him make difficult decisions, whether it be health care reform or over the auto bailout. and that she has seen him make these decisions putting the middle class first. tha

years ago. also speaking tonight, first lady michelle obama. her job, reach out to women voters of both parties. cnn's edlavendera has a closer look. but, first, dana bash, what are the main priorities that democrats will be pushing tonight? >> reporter: well, democratic officials say the main priority is to remind people that this just isn't just about whether or not they should fire or hire again president obama. it's that it's going to be a choice. and this is really if you talk to any strategist of any party kind of the way you run an incumbent's re-election campaign. that it is a choice between the president and mitt romney. so they'll try to what they say is crystallize that choice between the two men. and they're also going to try to emphasize the fact that as president obama has been doing for months that they believe that the democratic party is the party for the middle class. and also talk about, they say, the accomplishments that they feel that the president hasn't gotten enough credit for, bailing out the auto industry. they believe the health care bill. they'll talk about t

. it sounds a little bit like michelle obama's speech when she tried to link policy and the person. so this is also a guy joe biden, the vice president who's beenn on some of these decisions, he had a famous phrase which i guess we can't repeat on television to describe when health care passed. what's interesting about this through the prism of joe biden is this is a man who has not ruled out a 2016 run. so a lot will be looked at in this speech. this has been a man who's been quite loyal to president obama, done him a lot of go ahead. he has gone off the reservation as we say a couple of times. but he has done what they've asked of him. and, you know, the question is what happens next? over the next four years. we saw the powerful speech from bill clinton. and of course if you talked to folks out here after bill clinton last night, who do they all want to ask about? hillary clinton. it sets up a really interesting dynamic of a sitting vice president who's been very loyal to this president and of course hillary clinton who said she doesn't want to run. but certainly joe biden has said

. and by the way, after last night, i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. >> mayor villaraigosa, the crowd went wild, look at you. you're still basking in it as well. it's no secret the republicans have said that might be their secret weapon because it might be hard to follow and it also might remind people that president obama is not president clinton. your thoughts? >> actually, it's going to be an absolute assistance to the president. this was a shot in the arm that was a rocket launch, if you will. president clinton is not just a great orator, he's a great teacher. in many ways, it wasn't just a great speech. it was a very simple explanation of how we got here, the free fall that we were in as an economy, what president obama did to put the brakes on that free fall. and i thought it was an amazing, amazing speech. you know, the fact is, you guys have been talking a lot about enthusiasm and whether or not it was absent. we saw it on tuesday with michelle obama. we saw it last night with president clinton. we saw it when the two of them came together. let me tell
